Church News


The Southwark Peace Garden is now open to the public.

The garden is the brainchild of our own Abdulrahman Musa-Johnson, a public garden dedicated to reducing knife crime in the local area and to providing support to community members affected by knife crime.  

Many thanks to Kate Sedwell and team for all their hard work in seeing the garden to completion.

Many thanks to ‘Business in the Community’ and ‘Golden Oldies’ for organising a work day with volunteers from Google.

The volunteers helped to weed and tidy both gardens and planted new bedding plants.




We launched our new bi-monthly magazine on Easter Sunday 16th April 2017.
